“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” – C. S. Lewis

I’m shocked to find C.S. Lewis wrong…friendship is why I survive. I think of how my wife would feel to find me dead, how the dogs would feel, and how all of you out there, reading this, would be saddened by these pages going dark…and I fight on, all the harder.
